.DISCUSSION...A WEAK COLD FRONT HAS PUSHED JUST SOUTH OF THE BURN
SITE THIS MORNING...TURNING THE SURFACE WINDS OUT OF THE NORTH TO
NORTHEAST.  WINDS WILL CONTINUE OUT OF THE NORTHEAST THROUGH THE
DAY.  TRANSPORT WINDS WILL ALSO BE OUT OF THE NORTHEAST...THEN
WILL CHANGE TO MORE WESTERLY ABOVE THE MID-LEVEL INVERSION...WHICH
WILL BE AROUND THE TOP OF THE MIXED LAYER.  DO EXPECT SOME BROKEN
HIGH LEVEL CLOUDINESS THROUGH THE MORNING...BUT THOSE SHOULD
BECOME SCATTERED BY NOON.  AS WE GET MORE SUNSHINE AND BETTER
MIXING THIS AFTERNOON...MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL BE ABLE TO DROP DOWN
TO AROUND 25 PERCENT. AS FOR THE FOG POTENTIAL OVERNIGHT...DO J
EXPECT AT LEAST SOME PATCHY MORNING FOG TO DEVELOP BY THURSDAY
MORNING ACROSS THE REGION...HOWEVER THE THREAT FOR ANY WIDESPREAD
DENSE FOG REMAINS LOW.

POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK INCLUDING OBSERVATIONS TAKEN AT
THE BURN SITE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  YOU CAN USE THE SAME
WEBPAGE WHERE YOU REQUESTED THE SPOT FORECAST FOR THIS.  YOU MAY
ALSO CALL OUR OFFICE IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.
